  3. HIV/AIDS in Addis Ababa: background, projections, impacts and interventions

    The HIV/AIDS epidemic is a very serious problem in Ethiopia. By some estimates, one of every 13 adults in the country is infected with HIV. Yet because Ethiopia is an expansive country with a large, predominantly rural population, the national figures disguise the fact that the epidemic is much more serious in some regions than in others. That is the reason for this analysis. In Addis Ababa, approximately one of six adults is already infected, reflecting much higher infection rates than in many other parts of the country. …

  5. Facing the HIV/AIDS pandemic

    We are entering the third decade of what may be the most devastating epidemic in human history: HIV/AIDS. The disease continues to ravage families, communities, and countries throughout the world. In addition to the 20 million people who have already died of AIDS, most of the 40 million people now living with HIV are likely to die a decade or more prematurely. Each day, 14,000 people-12,000 adults and 2,000 children-become infected with HIV. At least 95 percent of these new infections occur in less developed countries; more than 50 percent afflict women and young adults. …

  6. Excluded and invisible. The state of the world's children 2006

    This year, The State of theWorld's Children will focus on the millions of children for whom these pledges of a better world remain unfulfilled. The report assesses global efforts to realize the MDGs, the central development targets of the agenda, and demonstrates the marked impact that their achievement would have on children's lives and future generations. It also explains how, with the MDGs focused on national averages, children in marginalized communities risk missing out on essential services such as health care, education and protection. …

  7. Enumerating children orphaned by HIV/AIDS: counting a human cost. A critique of statistical accounts of the HIV/AIDS orphan crisis.

    AFXB uses the figure of 100 million by 2010 as the most reliable projection for future AIDS orphans. Other published projections are considerably smaller than this, however the data inputted into such projections excludes many children, due to difficulties in quantification. Yet, these children will be in need of the same levels of support as those who have been included in statistical tables. …

  8. UNFPA informe anual 2004: Enfrentar la crisis del VIH/SIDA

    En 2004, más de tres millones de personas murieron a causa del SIDA y casi cinco millones se agregaron a los ya infectados con el VIH.La CIPD señaló en 1994 la gravedad del VIH/SIDA y, en el examen de la situación efectuado cinco años después (CIPD+5), en respuesta a la propagación de la epidemia, se definieron objetivos específicos y urgentes. Entre las Medidas clave de seguimiento se indicó que la prevención del VIH/SIDA debe ser un "componente integral" de los programas de salud sexual y salud reproductiva a nivel de la atención primaria de la salud. …

  9. El estado de la población mundial 2004: Prevención del VIH/SIDA: Prevención: Condones (preservativos)

    Los condones, tanto masculinos como femeninos, son componentes esenciales de las acciones de prevención entre la población sexualmente activa. Los programas pueden alentar el uso de condones para la protección contra el embarazo no deseado y contra ITS, así como contra el VIH, y pueden informar a los clientes de que los anticonceptivos que no sean de barrera no previenen la transmisión del VIH. …

  10. Children on the brink 2004. A joint report of new orphan estimates and a framework for action

    This report contains the most current and comprehensive statistics on children orphaned by AIDS and other causes (appendix 1). Unlike previous editions of Children on the Brink, which included data for children under age 15, this edition provides data for children under age 18. This change brings the statistics in line with the international definition of childhood. It also recognizes that orphans and vulnerable children are not necessarily young children and that problems caused by orphaning extend well beyond age 15. …
